Electronic Arts has brought up the prices for its older games on Steam, games like Sims 4, and Dragon Age all saw a sudden increase in price, and this news is most likely going to tick off a lot of fans.
Unfortunately, bringing up the prices of old games is nothing new – Especially for EA. They have built up quite a reputation over the past decade for engaging in some of the most reviled business practices in the gaming industry, so it’s not much of a surprise that EA has been voted the most hated company multiple years in a row.
In certain cases, some of the EA games are more than double what they are on Origin. So, if you are really wanting to play some old games made by EA, you might have to make an Origin account to save money.
The reasoning behind these increased prices seems like an attempt to force people to have to sign up with Origin, in order to avoid paying large fees on Steam.
